Mok Gar Fist (Mok family style fist), known as one of the famous fists in martial arts in Guangdong Province, will be included in textbooks to become teaching content for PE courses and be promoted in all schools in Qiaotou Township, Dongguan this year.

Originated in the reign of Emperor Jiaqing of Qing Dynasty, Mok Gar Fist was developed by Mo Zhejiao in Huizhou District of Guangdong. Mo Longfu and the others from Dazhou Village of Qiaotou Township followed to imitate the fist and become the second-generation successor. From then on, Mok Gar has been passed down from generation to generation in Dazhou Village and Shi ShuiKou Village of Qiaotou Township and gradually developed as one of the five famous fists in Guangdong Province, the other four fists being Hung, Lau, Choy, Lee (Hong, Liu, Cai, Li) .

In 2009, Mok Gar Fist of Qiaotou Township was successfully listed as the 3rd-batch intangible cultural heritage in Guangdong Province.

In July of 2009, Qiaotou No.1 Primary School and No. 2 Primary School became pilot schools to teach Mok Gar Fist in PE classes. According to Mo Huanpei, president of Qiaotou No.1 Primary School, the school will teach students Mok Gar Fist for 20 minutes every day during the break time. It is also one of the assessment content of PE class. In order to make the students accept Mok Gar Fist easily, the school also uses background music with it. It has become one of the favorite courses for students.
